10th Global Health Insurance Conference
20-21 September 2018
Berlin, Germany



Health insurance is one of the world’s fastest-growing global industries and plays a critical role in the life of people, which is why there are constant changes happening within the industry. As technology innovation, higher customer expectations and disruptive newcomers redefine the marketplace, insurers remain focused on growing top-line sales, bottom-line profitability, addressing challenges, and competing in a dynamic industry. On one hand there is a need to control cost inflation, which creates new incentives and payment structures. On the other hand emerging digital health and connected insurance create new challenges for the industry players. The rapid growth of the health insurance sector is accompanied by challenges to meet rising expectations of policyholders and keep up with growing competition.

During our two day event 10th Global Health Insurance Conference, will gather together, VP’s, CEO’s, Managing Directors, Heads of Operations, Claims Management and Insurance Fraud, as well as solution providers, to share the cutting edge practice strategies on pricing and cost containment, cover innovative trends in connected health, Artificial Intelligence, Cyber security, Robotics and speak on how to prepare for technology and disruption wave hitting the health insurance industry today.
